I have been very sick lately and my doctor has me on a antibiotic maintenance plan and have picked up 8 kilos.  This article explains why.  I should be able to leave this plan in about 6 more weeks.  It will take some time to get the weight back off my body.

DNP is more dangerous than methamphetamine, but both are exceptionally good at causing weight loss. The best way to lose weight is slow and steady, eat small, healthy meals and drink as much water as you can whilst taking as much exercise as you can handle. Dramatic weight loss is dangerous for your body, and slows down your metabolism which means as soon as you start eating normally again, the weight comes back on even faster. Slow and steady wins the race.

Sure but still you need to burn more calories then you consume. I don't know why its so hard to understand. Most people try to blame almost everything.

 

I got a slow thyroid and I still got rid of the flab. Did not even need to do keto. Just eating healthy and less and some exercise (though the exercise is only needed if you want to go real low bodyfat).

 

Though exercise is always good of course.

 

You are right about the gut bacteria of course but for now its a pipe dream and you have to do it with what you have.

 

Its all about life style changes.. i now with a lot of struggle completely banished sugary drinks (was the hardest to do harder then eating healthy). It just takes time and some effort.

Exactly - CICO is the ONLY basis for loosing weight. HOW and by what mechanisms you do are a totally different story, the debates on which is easier/healthier/more successful are countless. Food is fuel for the engine, if you burn more fuel than you consume an alternative source of fuel WILL be used.
